In Photoshop Lightroom 3 Essential Training, author Chris Orwig provides a comprehensive look at Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3, the popular photo-asset management, enhancement, and publishing program. The course covers indispensable techniques such as importing, processing, and organizing images in the Library, correcting and adjusting images in the Develop module, and creating slideshows, web galleries, and print picture packages. In addition to exploring all of Lightroom 3's capabilities, this course is rich with creative tips and expert advice on photographic workflow. Exercise files accompany the course.
Another way to tap into the organizational and evaluative strengths of the Library module is to take a look at what kind of information you can display with the thumbnails, or what kind of information you can include as an overlay when you're in the Loupe View mode. Now before you actually get to customizing this, what I want to do is share with you a few shortcuts for accessing this information. Now these shortcuts aren't very intuitive so you want to jot them down. If you're in the Grid View mode, what you can do is press the J key.
By pressing the J key, you can see that I'm toggling through different views. The current view is without any information, or then we have what's called the Compact Cell or an Expanded Cell. In this particular case, you notice it has the dimensions, a file type, the name. I can also add things like star ratings, and I have other badges included as well. All right. Well, let's take this image to the Loupe View mode. We'll do that by double-clicking the file. Now here we can actually display information as an overlay.
To toggle through the different overlay modes, what we're going to do is actually press the I key. Think of it as information overlay. So we'll go ahead and press the I key once and there you can see I have some information, an f-stop, the file name, dimensions. I'll press it again. I've very different information. Then press it one ore time, and that info disappears. So again, when you're in the Loupe View mode, the shortcut is the I key. If you're in the Grid View mode, the shortcut key is the J key. All right. Well, how about customizing that information? Let's go ahead and take a look at that in the next movie.
